Stephen Carr has admitted he doesn’t know what the future holds for him at Birmingham City.
The Carling Cup-winning captain has not been formally offered a new contract by the club.
Carr, who has no plans to retire and believes he can play on for another couple of years yet, said he was still waiting on a decision.
It appears the 35-year-old has become a victim of the current state of limbo at Blues. Carson Yeung and parent company Birmingham International Holdings Limited have serious financial problems.
As one consequence Blues remain under a transfer embargo until BIHL’s accounts for last year are filed and concrete squad planning seems to be muddied.
‘‘We’ve spoken about it (a contract) but there’s no news. I’m still waiting to see what’s going to happen,” Carr said.
“I haven’t been offered anything and I don’t know if I will be offered anything. There’s a lot of ifs and buts, I suppose, with what’s going on at the club and in Hong Kong.
“But there’s been nothing said definitely, so I don’t know where we stand to be honest.”
A knee injury thwarted Carr from December onwards but he would have been fit for the Championship play-off final, had Blues got there.
Chris Hughton indicated towards the close of the campaign he wanted to extend Carr’s St Andrew’s career.
And Carr would be open to committing to Blues again, scoffing at speculation he was ready to hang up his boots.
“Of course I want to play on,” he said. “My knee’s fine and I think I’ve got another couple of years left in me.
“You do have to have some luck with injuries and, unfortunately for me, I missed the last few months after I hardly missed a game in the previous three seasons here.”
If the contract issue drags on then Carr will naturally consider offers from elsewhere. But Blues would be his preferred home, particularly as his relationship with Hughton is strong from their days at Spurs.
Hughton’s future, however, is another thorny issue that has been engulfed in uncertainty.
“Chris has done a great job,” said Carr. “It’s no surprise that there’s speculation about him.”
